Does anyone know how to keep cucumber slices really crisp like Sub-Way?

I use to work at Subway. Vegetables were kept in a walk-in cooler. Each morning before shift, we would use the slicer to prepare the fresh veggies, like cucumber slices.
Slices were kept in a stainless steel container covered with plastic wrap in the refrigerator until time for shift to begin. Also, the food bar portion of Subway is temperature controlled with vegs and meats cold and meatballs, etc. kept hot. They were very careful about this in light of keeping the food safe to consume.

place sliced cukes in a bowl of very cold water and place them in the coldest part of the fridge. i do this all the time and they should last more than a week
